Cherish #WotW


I heard a song today that I haven't heard for absolutely ages.  It transported me back almost two decades ago instantly.

"Wanna cherish each moment that could last cause baby,
you're all that I have
so just in case"

Just in Case, by Jaheim

I wondered how many of these busy happy moments that happen every day right now I actually cherish.  Toddler girl's constant chattering, our son's never ending questions.  Husband's tired "night nights" and my quiet moments enjoying a hot shower in the morning - sometimes the only quiet moment of the day!

Just as back nearly 20 years ago when I first heard that song, I didn't realise how much I would cherish the memories it evokes.  I realise now that these moments, while the kids are small, in bed, safe, really should be cherished.  One day, these will be very happy memories too.

  2. You're so right. I often tell myself, on the more exhausting days!, that these are the times to cherish and enjoy as they'll soon be over and I've a feeling that they are the very best of times. Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  3. What I cherish is when my son would giggle. He always gives and yet so priceless to hear. #wotw
